Road racing is a sport that takes man and machine to extremes. These hard roads demand everything - total commitment, total faith - from those who race on them. So what makes these men race? What is the fascination that the sport holds for the riders, their families and the fans? In "Hard Roads", Stephen Davison - the world's number one road-racing photographer and a man who has unparalleled access to the riders - answers that question. In his incredible photographs and accompanying text, he captures the essence of the sport - the all-consuming passion; the incredible skill and speed; and, always, the spectre of death on the horizon. "Hard Roads" is Stephen Davison's unforgettable testament to the sport he loves, a book that captures the sense of the ordinary and the extraordinary that is the essence of road racing.
